I also used the same approach as PareshGmat, but I would like to post a more detailed solution:
Let's say that x is the number of black shoes sold and y the number of brown shoes sold. Then, x+y is the total number of shoes that were sold. [1] 2/3 of the total shoed sold (x+y) were black (x): this translates in 2/3 of x+y, which is 2/3*(x+y).
Then, [1] becomes: x+y= 2/3(x+y) + y x+y - 2/3(x+y) = y x+y - (2x+2y)/3 = y [3(x+y)-2x+2y]/3 = y (3x+3y-2x+2y)/3= y (x+y)/3=y x+y = 3y x= 2y y=x/2 B
